38th (1st Staffordshire) Regiment of Foot


38th Foot (Battalion Companies)

The 38th (1st Staffordshire) Regiment of Foot arrived in Boston in July 1774, from Ireland. He took part in the fighting at Lexington and Concord (elite companies only), Bunker Hill, Long Island, Fort Lee, Chestnut Neck, Brandywine, Germantown and Monmouth Court House.
In 1778 he was part of the garrison of New York
. The elite companies have also fought at Yorktown, where they surrendered with the rest of the army of Lord Cornwallis in 1781.
A Bunker Hill, the 38th regiment was at 43rd, in the Pigotts brigade, while the elite companies were part of the right wing unit wakes Howe.
The distinctive color of the regiment was yellow, also the laces of the troops had the characteristic shape of a "bastion", such as the 5th Regiment
and the 1st Guards.

The photos show the full regiment, along with the Grenadiers and Light Infantry companies.
All the miniatures presented here are Wargames Foundry and were painted by the employees of Strategianova.
